I always feel like Monday’s and Tuesday’s crawl by, then the week slowly picks up steam until we’re at warp speed come the weekend and it’s over all too soon.
I don’t know about you but I spend my week fantasizing about the weekend.
Sleeping in. Big homemade breakfasts. A thorough house cleaning. Fully caught up on laundry. Meal Planning. Grocery Shopping. Food prep. Gym trips. Visits with Friends and Family. And rest. Lots of rest.
A girl can dream.
As a new Mama I’ll be lucky if I achieve one item on my weekend dream list. And you know what? That’s ok.
I’m working on giving myself some grace. You should too. Didn’t get it allllll done? Don’t fret. Focus on what you did do. Took an extra long shower? Spent some time just napping on the couch? Ordered take-out to save yourself a night of dishes? Grace, people. Soak it up.
In the bigger picture what really matters, what will you regret more? A pile of laundry passed up in favor of snuggling on the couch for family movie night? Sounds like a more than even trade.
I’m the biggest offender of this idea. Of letting things just be. I’m getting better though. Mostly due to a tiny human that helps me slow down and let it go.
So take your case of the Monday’s with a side of grace. I know I am, that and a big mug of coffee :)
